If you’re a fan of the classic Italian dessert Tiramisu, try this quick, lower-calorie variation the next time you need a dessert in a hurry. Both types of ladyfingers—spongy and crunchy—work well.

Prep: 15 Minutes | Total Time: 45 Minutes
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces)
    nonfat ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons
    confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon
    ground cinnamon
  • 12 
    ladyfingers (about 1 3/4 ounces)
  • 4 tablespoons
    brewed espresso, or strong coffee, divided
  • 2 tablespoons
    melted bittersweet chocolate chips
  1. Combine ricotta, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
  2. Place 6 ladyfingers in a 9-by-5-inch (or similar size) loaf pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Spread the ricotta mixture over the ladyfingers.
